The "Viewer" program started out as a simple image preview program. It evolved into a basic slideshow program.
I wanted a simple program that would display all the images in a folder, but I wanted that program to stay where I put it on the screen and not change it's size. Honestly, the "Microsoft Image and Fax Viewer" came pretty close to doing that, but it didn't understand automatic EXIF rotation -- I only wanted to view the rotated picture, not modify the file! I ended up writing my own image viewer.
Because I wanted the ability to have a true full-screen display (for slideshows), I had to forgo the borders and menus windows normally have. That made resizing and whatnot awkward, so I built in lots of keyboard shortcuts to allow you to do what you need. Just press ? or F1 when the program is running to get a list of the keyboard shortcuts.
